Fairy Inspiration

As I've mentioned, I adore the digital stamp images by Tammy at A Day for Daisies.  I used another of her stamps for some office decor.  A few years ago, I had a very busy year.  I was working a lot of hours.  It happens but it usually happens in spurts.  This particular year though, there was no break.  It was a sustained level of activity and it was running me down.

I forget where I saw it, but I found an awesome quote from Franklin. D. Roosevelt: "When you come to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!"  I had a soccer ball with an alligator clip as a promo item from BMO in my office (meant to hold a picture).  I wrote out this quote and kept it right in front of my computer monitor.  (Yes, once upon a time, I had *a* computer monitor.  Now I have three!!)

Anyhow, it is LONG since overdue to make this quote in to something beautiful.  (I don't even follow soccer!)  Plus, I found another quote to display so this one had to be bumped from the soccer ball.

Enter, my fairy friend!

Isn't this image darling?  It's called Dandelion Delivery.  I originally bought it for cardmaking for something like "Special Delivery" or even "Enjoy the Ride".  Instead, it lends it self really well for this quote.

I coloured them with copics and promarkers and a little bit of sparkle gel pens.  If I knew how to colour with distress inks, I think this image would work beautifully with those.  While I used it for an inspirational encouragement quote, I think this image would make fantastic nursery decor too!

I hope these images bring you a smile as they do for me.  Look for them soon in my shops!
